“ The Fauxgrass Quartet played its first gig exactly a year ago. Since then, the Grand Rapids-based bluegrass fusion outfit has crisscrossed Michigan, toured more than a dozen states and recently released its first self-titled EP, with a full-length album in the works, building a growing audience for its rootsy, genre-stewing acoustic music. Suffice to say, band members – banjo player Joey Schultz, guitarist Adam Balcer, mandolinist Jason Wheeler and bassist Tim McKay – have successfully tapped into the burgeoning folk/bluegrass movement that’s energizing young fans across the country by giving retro-acoustic strains a modernistic flair with an injection of funk, prog-rock and more. The band – which prides itself on playing old, vintage instruments – takes traditional-sounding bluegrass tunes, then tries to “mess them up” by blending different genres into the songs to create something, well, “fauxgrass.””
